Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital to soon break ground on $3 million green space

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital will soon break ground on a $3 million outdoor space that will promote healing through nature.

The two-acre garden area, which will formally be known as Le Bonheur Green, will be located on Adams Street adjacent to the hospital’s entrance. The goal is to give patients and their families a place to step away from the hospital and the stresses of treatment.

“Our families have long needed an outdoor green space to provide the kind of natural healing and respite simply not available inside,” said Le Bonheur President Michael Wiggins. “Le Bonheur Green is an extension of the healing that happens inside the hospital.”

Plans for the space include large open grass areas, a prayer labyrinth, a front porch gathering space and a heart-shaped walking path.

The project will be fully funded by donations.
